419 scam - "wash wash", black currency
In a "wash wash" scam the victim will be shown black paper, which supposedly is US dollar notes stained with black ink for security purposes. Such paper is given to victims who have paid various fees in other "419" scams hoping to receive millions of dollars that they have been promised. The victim will be told that he will need special cleaning chemicals, which of course cost thousands of dollars more. In reality the paper is just blank sheets run through a photocopier with the lid open, cut to the same size as US currency.
